Berkeley, CA Rolls Out Energy Grants

Berkeley will roll out an energy-saving program July 6 that will give homeowners and commercial property owners thousands of dollars for making improvements. The program, called Money for Energy Efficiency, seeks "deep energy savings" that come from analyzing the entire home or building and making systemic adjustments. After an initial audit, for which homeowners get a $200 rebate, they can get back $1,200 for the first 20 percent of energy savings and $700 for each 5 percent after that, up to $5,000. Apartment building and commercial property owners can get back up to $32,500 per building depending on the energy savings made. The money for the program comes from federal stimulus funds and PG&E.  For details, visit the city's Money for Energy Efficiency website at
